Thank you CNN, it's important that Trumps base remembers how important it is to go to the polls in Nov. You keep reminding them.

Way to win hearts and minds! Sure, HC didn't mean that all Trump supporters are deplorable.

A CNN panel from Saturday night has gone viral this week, showing two guests appearing on air with anchor Don Lemon, mocking Trump supporters during the network’s impeachment coverage.

The discussion features New York Times columnist and CNN contributor Wajahat Ali with ex-GOP strategist Never Trumper Rick Wilson making fun of those who might ever vote for President Donald Trump...

Wilson and Ali then continued with fake accents to mock those who put Trump into office as unsophisticated backwoods hicks. “Donald Trump’s the smart one, and y’all — y’all elitists are dumb,” Wilson said.

“You elitists with your geography and your maps and your spelling!” Ali chimed in.

“Your math and your readin’!” Wilson responded as the three men laughed hysterically at the belittlement of those alienated by media elites such as themselves.

The on-air exchange has prompted explosive backlash against CNN and those on the panel...

Have to admit I don't know any of these idiotic characters. Journalists? I know third graders with more smarts and composure, not to mention objectivity.

They are so stupid--on camera-- one less ad President Trump and supporters won't have to produce--they handed it to us on a silver platter!

Much like Donald Trump handed the democrats their arrogant and overconfident posteriors November 2016!

Um, I read on Hot Topics that no one watches CNN, and no one believes anything CNN has to say.

So why the hand flapping from the Federalist?

After the insults and name calling that Trump spews daily this is what is outrageous!!!!

I guess we don't expect any decorum from our president but everyone else must behave at all times.

Can the bar be set any lower for Trump?

Don Lemonhead's a real pig--and is being sued for exhibiting the fact.


Don Lemon sued by Hamptons bartender for alleged assault

By Kate Sheehy

August 13, 2019 | 5:32pm







He’s soured on Lemon.

A former Hamptons bartender says in a new lawsuit that Don Lemon assaulted him after the CNN host disgustingly fondled himself at a local watering hole.

Dustin Hice says in his Suffolk County Supreme Court suit that he was slinging drinks in July 2018 for The Old Stove Pub in Sagaponack when he and his coworkers decided to go out for drinks after work one night.

The group headed to Murf’s Backstreet Tavern in Sag Harbor, where Hice told The Post, “I see out of the corner of my eye, it’s Don Lemon’’ there, too.

“I had had two beers, maybe three at the most,’’ Hice recalled. “I said, ‘Hey, Don, let me buy you a drink.’ I turned to Nick the bartender and said, ‘Hey, Nick, let me get two [vodka] Lemon Drops’ and put two fingers in the air.

“Don was sitting with two or three other people, and he looks at me and goes, ‘I’m just trying to have a good time, man.’ I said, ‘Oh, OK, sorry,’ and that was it,’’ Hice said.

“I absolutely wasn’t hitting on him whatsoever,’’ Hice said of Lemon, 53, who is gay and married. “I’m a heterosexual male.”

As alleged in his complaint, Hice, 38, told The Post, “About 5 or 10 minutes later, Don gets up, walks around the bar, comes up right up to me and puts his hands down his board shorts. He rubs himself aggressively, his penis and whatever else down there.”

Lemon then “shoved his index and middle fingers in Plaintiff’s mustache and under Plaintiff’s nose,’’ according to Hice’s suit, which was filed over the weekend.

“And he goes, ‘Do you like p—y or d–k?’ And he kept saying, ‘P or D? P or D?’ He said it three or four times. I’m like, ‘Whoa man, what the hell?’ ” Hice claimed.

The accuser said he was so traumatized that he fled the bar and came back a couple minutes later to find Lemon gone.

“I had to go into work the next day, and by then, people all across town knew it,’’ Hice told The Post. “It spread like wildfire. And I had people coming in that week and ordering Lemon Drops and being like, ‘Give me two,’ ” infuriating and humiliating him, he said.

Hice says in his suit that he suffered “severe emotional stress and loss of future earnings and opportunities’’ and is suing for unspecified damages.

CNN responded in a statement: “The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts. This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon.

“Don categorically denies these claims and this matter does not merit any further comment at this time.”

A source close to Lemon said Hice’s camp contacted Lemon’s lawyers and demanded $1.5 million in exchange for not filing the suit, the source said. Lemon refused the demand because he did nothing wrong, the source said.

A Hice source said there were talks about a financial settlement and that Lemon’s side offered “six figures,” but in the end, the potential deal never materialized.
CNN didn’t comment on the “six-figure” claim.

As for social-media attacks on CNN, Hice said, “I have never ever ranted about anyone, especially a news station. … I am a private, religious man.’’

Hice’s suit calls Lemon “an Emmy Award winning news anchor … who among other things, purports to be a staunch advocate for the ‘Me Too’ movement.” But “when the cameras are turned off … Mr. Lemon’s actions are in stark and disturbing contrast to the public persona he attempts to portray,’’ the suit says.

Hice’s lawyer, Andrew Miltenberg, said, “Just because my client is a straight man doesn’t make this assault any more acceptable than if he were a woman.

“This lawsuit is sending a message loud and clear — if you are in a position of power, you cannot get away with sexual assault. No matter what the circumstances are.”

Flock Of Monocled Geese In Top Hats Joins Don Lemon In Round Of Laughter At The Commoners

January 28th, 2020

NEW YORK, NY—Over the weekend, CNN’s Don Lemon burst out in a fit of laughter with his panel of monocled, tophat wearing geese.

While Lemon tried to talk about the half of the country that doesn't share his political views, the panel of geese went into fits of honking, cackles, and belly-laughs. Lemon himself could barely get a word out without going into another episode of laughs.

Later, Lemon and the geese went out for lattes and studied geography.

elvis, the campaign ads keep writing themselves. Lemon's hysterical laughing at the insults and outright bigotry spewed from his buffoon guests shows who he is, and his agenda.

His "sorry not sorry", "I'm not laughing at Trump supporters, I'm laughing at the jokes (ridiculing the Trump supporters with bigotry and xenophobia)" is insulting.

elvis, imagine if FOX news hosted people who made fun of Indian Americans and Indian accents and called them, "Apu" and said they worked in 7-11 making Slurpees all day long.

And imagine the FOX host not being horrified by the bigotry, but crying laughing and egging it on. Then making an excuse instead of offering an apology.

You know the Left would be calling for that FOX person's head on a platter.

Why do they consistently mock the South and portray Southerners as "ignorant hillbillies?" Talk about stereotyping. If this was any other group of people they were mocking the "ist" words would be flowing.

Stan, I think it is malicious when Don Lemon sneers into the camera, "How dare you accuse ME?".

No one was buying what he was selling. That segment went on and on, as he encouraged the bigotry with his silly slapstick act.

If a FOX anchor encouraged ugly bigotry and hatred like Lemon did with his guests, there would be a dozen campaigns to get him fired by now.

"

While interacting with voters in 2006, Biden told a man that in Delaware, the largest population growth at that time was “Indian-Americans — moving from India.

“You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent — I’m not joking,” he told the man, raising his eyebrows.

“It’s gigantic,” he added."
